* ''Series/BlackMirror''. GOOD GOD. The most prominent example is "Playtest" - a NiceGuy named Cooper undergoes an experimental play test for a survival horror virtual reality sim: at first he's amused by the JumpScare haunted house, but then the game starts getting too personal with him, culminating in [[spoiler:him [[HopeSpot entering a fake-out of leaving the game and returning home to America to his mother]] only to find she has Alzheimers just like his father did and she doesn't remember him. Then it turns out that the whole experience was a DyingDream, as the machine malfunctioned immediately into the experiment from his cellphone ringing. Poor Cooper died alone and being psychologically tortured with his worst fears in an engineered IronicHell, and all because his mom tried to call him. From Cooper's mother's perspective, there's the horror of your child going off into the world alone and not returning to contact you, and then you accidentally and inadvertently ''killing your child'', also qualifies.]]

*** Not just the holocaust - there was a very disturbing 9/11 parallel as well, with the mushroom cloud rising above London, while people look to the distance and can't quite believe what is happening.

** Ellaria Sand in "The Queen's Justice" is faced with her daughter Tyene being threatened by a vengeful psychopath who fully intends to kill her, and is reduced to desperately and futilely begging for mercy for her child for a woman who will show her none. Afterwards, she is left chained and gagged inches out of reach from her daughter, left with the knowledge that Tyene ''will'' die but not when, powerless to say or do anything to help or comfort her daughter in her final hours. It's made even worse by the terrified, plaintive whimper of "Mama!" that Tyene lets out when she realises what Cersei has done to her; she's a terrified child begging for reassurance from her mother and there is ''nothing'' Ellaria can do to comfort her, a fear any parent can relate to.
